Minor League Contract All-Star Team

I am a baseball geek, therefore I find tremendous joy in even the smallest of baseball related maneuvers. For instance, the minor league contract with non-roster spring training invite. The following is a 25-man roster composed of the "best" MLB players that saw time in the majors last season. Their 2009 MLB stats are listed and the team that inked them to a minor league deal for 2010.

Starters:
AVG/OPS
1st/Mike Jacobs (NYM)- .228/698, 46 r, 19 hr, 61 rbi
2nd/Bobby Scales (CHC)- .242/.723, 15 r, 15 rbi
SS/Nick Green (LAD)- .236/.669, 35 r, 6 hr, 35 rbi
3rd/Chad Tracy (CHC)- .237/.695, 29 r, 8 hr, 39 rbi
C/Josh Bard (SEA)- .230/.655, 20 r, 6 hr, 31 rbi
LF/Laynce Nix (CIN)- .239/.767, 42 r, 15 hr, 46 rbi
CF/Josh Anderson (CIN)- .240/.580, 42 r, 24 rbi, 25 sb
RF/Frank Catalanotto (NYM)- .278/.728, 18 r, 9 rbi
DH/Marcus Thames (NYY)- .252/.777, 33 r, 13 hr, 36 rbi

Bench:
C/Chad Moeller (BAL)- .258/.751, 6 r, 10 rbi
IF/OF/Joe Thurston (ATL)- .225/.645, 27 r, 25 rbi, 4 sb
OF/Cory Sullivan (HOU)- .250/.720, 17 r, 15 rbi, 7 sb
1st/Mike Sweeney (SEA)- .281/.777, 25 r, 8 hr, 34 rbi

Rotation:
ERA/WHIP
1. Livan Hernandez (WAS)- 9 w, 183.2 ip, 102 k, 5.44/1.56
2. Jeff Weaver (LAD)- 6 w, 79 ip, 64 k, 3.65/1.52
3. Tim Redding (COL)- 3 w, 120 ip, 76 k, 5.10/1.43
4. Russ Ortiz (LAD)- 3 w, 85.2 ip, 65 k, 5.57/1.67
5. Miguel Batista (WAS)- 7 w, 71.1 ip, 52 k, 4.04/1.65

Bullpen:
1. D.J. Carrasco (PIT)- 5 w, 93.1 ip, 62 k, 3.76/1.41
2. Brian Bass (PIT)- 5 w, 86.1 ip, 54 k, 4.90/1.74
3. Ron Villone (WAS)- 5 w, 48.2 ip, 33 k, 4.25/1.71
4. Justin Miller (LAD)- 3 w, 56.2 ip, 36 k, 3.18/1.31
5. Guillermo Mota (SF)- 3 w, 65.1 ip, 39 k, 3.44/1.18
6. Joe Nelson (BOS)- 3 w, 40.1 ip, 36 k, 4.02/1.46
7. Mike MacDougal (FLA)- 1 w, 54.1 ip, 34 k, 20 sv, 4.31/1.66

Notes:
As expected the starting lineup and rotation are weak. However, the bench and bullpen would likely be better than some real MLB teams'. Thames can also play LF/RF, Sweeney would platoon with Jacobs at 1st, and MacDougal would be the closer.

Nice job with this list! The bullpen certainly isn't bad at all and does top many pens in the league. Maybe Calero will qualify for this list too. In that case he'd be the closer. I disagree though with your assumption that the bench is also good. A bench with Jacobs, Thurston, Moeller and Sullivan is actually quite poor.
